Hare Krishna

Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

A glorious, inspirational, and potentially globe-shifting occasion is coming in just a few days! We hope you have already started planning your participation and the ISKCON Kirtan Ministry is here to support you.

The holy names of Krishna are the banner under which we are all united and Srila Prabhupada is undoubtedly their foremost ambassador. Here is a golden opportunity to glorify them both – by celebrating the 25th World Holy Name Festival in the 125th Birth Anniversary of Srila Prabhupada.

This year we’re offering a very special menu with activities both for deepening our relationship with the holy names and bringing them to others.

As a special offering to our Founder-acarya, Srila Prabhupada, the World Holy Name Festival will be celebrated for 2 WHOLE WEEKS this year, from September 10 – 23.

For the first week, between 10 to 16 September we encourage centers and individuals to organize local activities. We hope you have planned some activities already.

Then in the second week, from 17 to 23 September, we invite everyone to participate and relish the programs in the online World Holy Name Festival.

For the online program we have a very special schedule this year. Besides our well-known and loved Japa Retreats and Kirtan broadcasts, we are commemorating our Founder acarya in “Srila Prabhupada on Kirtan.”

We are also introducing a brand new program entitled “Learn and Evolve”. This program will be giving participants an opportunity to learn how to play Mrdanga and Harmonium, awaken their singing talent, increase their Sanskrit knowledge, learn how to implement Srila Prabhupada’s Kirtan Standards in their daily lives, dive into understanding Vaisnava Bhajans and increase their understanding of different religions in the Interfaith presentation.

We have a number of attractive posters, banners and videos for you. To download and share any of those amongst your friends, associates and communities, come to

In addition to encouraging devotees to go out to perform Harinam sankirtan in public places, we’re building on the success of the previous year’s FORTUNATE PEOPLE campaign which witnessed a miracle of 150,000+ videos offered to Srila Prabhupada capturing over 200,000 new people chanting the holy name.

Our new milestone during this most auspicious 125th anniversary of Srila Prabhupada’s appearance is to offer 1,250,000 maha-mantra Love & Peace chants from people all over the world and we’re ready to support all devotees in making this happen.
